It is a rolled top and bottom drum. I do want to find a weber like dome lid eventually so I can have two cooking shelves. Sidenote: I have a line on a SS dome lid from Arctic for around $27 plus shipping, may eventually go that route. But in the mean time I would like to salavge my present lit so I can cook whilest looking for a dome.

Any ideas on how to remove a rolled lid and still use it as a lid???

Thanks,

If you can find a donor drum, you can cut a lid off of it. I have a closed faced drum that I'm working on now. I left about 3/4 of a lip around the top of my drum (my lid had a raised groove about 1" from the edge. I cut just inside the groove. I cut the second lid as close to the ring as possible. To fit the grates in, I put a couple notches on either side of the lip leaving just enough room to get the grates in and hopefully still be airtight. My top grate rests comfortably on the 3/4" lip.

Another option (I'm doing this as well with a 3rd drum) is to cut the donor drum off below the high point of the middle top ridge. Use it as a super weber type lid.

Please keep in mind that I have no idea if this will work or not. This is my first UDS build and won't know if it works until next week when I season it.

Here's a couple pics.

3/4" lip

As I remember Hondad, that opener was the first part you had acquired for your UDS...

Looks good.

If that weber hanger goes under the lid and prevents it from sealing you are going to have temp control issues.

Default Thanks to all

Thanks to all, got to around page 140 or so, and had to start my build. Used a grape juice drum, had the typical tough coating to sand out after a burn. Tough job in the city. Seasoning went well, had to throw some sausages on while I waited. Used 3 -3/4 nipples for inlets w/ 1 ball valve & 8 -1/2" holes in lid. With valve open and 1 cap off stayed steady @ 230. Will try my hand at ribs this w/e. Thanks again to all for the advice.

Sweet, did you just screw individual casters to the bottom of the drum?

No problem with the heat and the rubber/plastic wheels?

I've been planning on buying a drum dolly, but maybe I'll just go that route..
